If you Google military children you will come across Ashlee Cowles’s blog and a poster telling you that April in the US is the month of appreciation for the Military Child. Is there an equivalent in Britain? I’ve never heard of one but surely there ought to be. After all these children didn’t actually sign up to live a military life, they are not soldiers, and many of them may well grow up to be civilians, all the kids in our family did ! Love and respect to all children living in military families this month.
